Review - Breaking Free by Cara Dee

The Hollywood scene has always fit Tennyson Wright like a too-tight sweater. A highly respected director, he has managed to avoid the games and power plays of Tinseltown. Until now. To gain more publicity for the film he's shooting, the studio has decided a PR relationship is in order, and soon Tennyson finds himself pushed into the spotlight with one of the actresses on set. Rich, spoiled, much younger, party princess Sophie Pierce. 

Sophie, famous for being infamous, got her part in the film due to her daddy, the studio chairman. But there’s more to her than wild nights and drunken tabloid photos, and she’s aching to prove it. Under Tennyson’s protective wing, she begins to navigate the uncharted territory of responsible adulthood and takes the first steps toward a legitimate, lasting fame based on her talent, not her reputation. 

But in order for Sophie to truly soar on her own, she’s going to have to shed every part of her life. 

Freedom has a price.

Oh, wow! I don't even know where to start! I loved Breaking Free, so so much! You know how you come across a story, and it stays with you? It makes you re-think about what you've read, if the characters had the right reactions, or if the story overall was satisfactory? That was this book!

Sophie is a typical self-absorbed socialite, that most likely lands up on gossip sites like TMZ and such. She is cast in a film, which her father owns the studio, and gets thrown into a "showmance" with the director. Any press, is good press, right?

Tennyson is older than Sophie and is not pleased with this, but once getting to "know" Sophie, He begins to have a change of heart. Sophie is young and na├»ve, but as she spends more time with Tennyson, she starts to grow up.

I think the key moment, was when Tennyson and Sophie go to the burger joint together. I felt there was a shift; something good was happening. He told Sophie to eat, and explained what beauty meant to him. I just loved their whole overall chat!

Cara Dee is an amazing writer and puts thought and detail into her work. Breaking Free made me cry and I LOVE THAT! Can't wait to read With Brave Wings in August!

Breaking Free by Cara Dee is "Sexy Read Approved," and I give it my 6-star rating!

= For those books that were extra special for me. Sometimes they moved me emotionally or made me think deeply about a topic. 

Sometimes they were beautiful stories. Most of the time they were the books that I need to own and will reread over and over again because I love the characters and story.

About the Author

There aren’t many things better than picking up my Kindle and getting completely sucked into a whole new world—where words morph into images and characters’ moods suddenly reflect my own.
Aside from good plot and writing, for me, it boils down to relatable characters.

As a writer, I’m not finished until the men and women in my books come to life, until I can see them as real people, until I can connect with them. Which means I write what I want to read: everyday heroes and heroines who have the same struggles we all do. They evolve, have flaws, make mistakes and amends, learn, and find the endings they fight for.

Those are the characters who take the readers on a journey away from work, laundry, grocery shopping, and to-do lists.

When I’m not writing, researching, or brainstorming, I’m either planning my next trip (never-ending bucket list!), reading, watching hockey, or spending time with family and friends.
